Parent Teacher Association

Welcome to the Eltham College Parent Association (ECPA), where community spirit and active participation converge to support and enhance the educational experience of our students. ECPA is a vibrant and dedicated group of parents, guardians, and staff who work collaboratively to foster a nurturing and inclusive environment for all members of our school community. Our mission is to build strong connections between families, faculty, and students through a variety of events, initiatives, and volunteer opportunities. By engaging in meaningful activities, we aim to enrich the academic, cultural, and social life at Eltham College, ensuring that every student can thrive and succeed. Money raised is usually spent on things that the school budget does not cover.

ECPA plays a crucial role in organising fundraising events, social gatherings, and educational workshops that benefit both students and parents. Our efforts help provide additional resources and opportunities that enhance the learning experience, from funding extracurricular programs to supporting school projects and improvements. We believe in the power of community involvement and strive to create a welcoming and supportive atmosphere where everyone feels valued and heard. Whether you are a new or returning member, we invite you to join us in making a positive impact on our school community and in contributing to the continued excellence of Eltham College.
